San Diego State guard Aqeel Quinn has surgery to repair broken hand

Monday December 1st, 2014

San Diego State guard Aqeel Quinn has undergone surgery to repair a broken hand, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The injury apparently occurred in the Aztecs' loss to Arizona last Wednesday, in which Quinn played 20 minutes and scored four points. San Diego State hasn't had a game since.

According to the Union-Tribune, no timetable has been given for Quinn's return but his injury typically keeps players out at least one month.

Quinn posted the following to Instagram on Monday:

Quinn, a senior, is San Diego State's second-leading scorer this season, averaging 9.7 points per game. 

While Quinn is now sidelined for the foreseeable future, sophomore guard Matt Shrigley is practicing with the team after missing the first six games of the season with a broken arm, according to the Union-Tribune. Shrigley could return for the Aztecs' game Thursday against San Diego.
